Emergency goodybags activated by secret code

By: thingymajig00 | 28-05-2015 22:24

So it's 1am you just realised your goodybag has ran out can't be bothered logging in and selecting goodybag etc so why can't you have one emergency text to giffgaff that you send and borrow £2 to make that call or text. This would last for 24 hours only after which you would be reminded you owe £2 plus you need to add credit. Maybe text iou2 plus pin number to xxxx to say add £2 this would also.be useful when you go.away, you forget to add credit, when you land you want to tell your family you arrived safely but have no credit so texting x number would lend you £2. The number would be free and as long as you provided a pin it.would.work

Theoretically its already in use as you can do it yourself. Just put £10 credit into your account and then you have £10 of emergency credit at all times. Very simple without the aggro.

I agree. Much better to keep some airtime credit rather than making things more complicated.

Agreed. Alternatively you can use a cashpoint to top up. In dire emergencies you can always use reverse call charges.

Hi does that mean adding credit by converting from airtime is not time sensitive and will not be lost.....?

I thought I had read a notification saying that giffgaff would be adding a fiver for us to borrow until the next top up.

So its already been done I

good idea,giffgaff need to have an emergency way of borrowing a small amount of funds to make calls or texts or emails,for times when your stuck and can’t top up at that precise time but need to use your phone in an emergency to contact a friend or family member.

i think its a good idea but i think to make it work that you would have a different code every time you want emergency credit.
